It is no secret that I LOVE photos [and have I mentioned how fabulous it is to have my best friend a phenomenal photographer!?]
Well I do, I love photos so much. They are all over my house and if I had more wall space there would be more. Not kidding.
I also love cards. 
So when I was contacted by an awesome online store called cardstore I was beyond thrilled.
They will make cards for you with your own photos on them and then mail them out to you!
How perfect is that!?
And it is already that time of year - we need to be creating Christmas cards...and I always make photos cards!
What appealed to me the most on the cardstore site right now were the birth announcements.
They had so many adorable choices how was I ever going to choose!!
My girl favorites...
Some adorable boy options...
I had so much fun designing Delainey's birth announcement and I was so excited that they shipped so fast (all the way to Canada!)
And it was like a party when I opened the box!
Of course Delainey's turned out just perfect. It took a lot of time to decide on which photos to use though!
They are great quality. The colors are pretty and soft just like the photos were and the photos are very clear. The paper is strong card stock and they send you free envelopes as well. The entire process of creating the announcement was very easy and straight forward, Everything about them is a win win in my books!

 The only problem I had was on the back I added this sweet photo of big sister Cruz - and I didn't want to add text here but because I didn't this text still printed. whomp whomp.
Insert white out! haha
Not a big deal but at least I will know for next time! :)

So if you are looking for a great site to create any sorta of personalized photo card or announcement be sure to check out cardstore.

*disclaimer: I received these announcements in exchange for my review but all opinions are my own and I really do love this site!

Cutest cards!
Yours turned out PERFECTLY!

Adorable! I wish they would contact me. I went to order Christmas Cards through them and it would have been almost 250$ for 125 cards! Sure their designs are nice but that's literally 5 times the price I can get at Costco!

They did a great job aside from that little bit at the back. Whoops! I just got chalkboard photos cards made from Mix Book. They were decently priced and I'm hoping they turn out good!

ughhhh i made a photo book tonight for the grandparents - and after i made my dads (and ordered) i was making MIL's and noticed the "add text" boxes were still there. i won't be surprised if it says "add text" now when they come! shoot!
love her announcements!

Laura Hit said...

Cute cards. A cute idea to cover up that text would be to find some coordinating washi tape and put that overtop

Kae said...
